Researchers at the Child Welfare League Foundation (CWLF) used the Parent-Child Internet Addiction Test converting it into a Mandarin version for children. They conducted the test to subjects who were 11 or 12 years old, and came up with basic result as below.
1. Based on the total test score, CWLF found that 9.9% of children are suspected to have internet addiction.
2. CWLF found that if percentage of children who answered “Often” and “Always” are combined, the top two statements are “Children spent longer time on Internet than expected” (31%) and “Children stated father or mother complained children had spent too much time online (27.1%).” It shows that children lack self-control when they use computer. They cannot manage time well and end up spending too much time on using computer.
